Beach sails and still lifes - especially flower arrangements against a strikingly colored background - are his favorite subjects. He immortalizes his love for men and for nature in bright, sun-drenched scenes." Belgium donated its" largest carpet in the world" (13.20 m by 8.65 m) to the United Nations in 1959. He also gained international fame for his murals for packet boats and his panel paintings for various world exhibitions. Became a teacher at the Higher Institute in Antwerp in 1936.
